The evolution of the agile organisation

Old dogs. Ingenious new tricks.

Across industries, organisations are facing unprecedented disruption. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, technology-based innovation and evolving customer expectations were driving change at incredible pace, highlighting the value of organisational agility.

Whereas ‘Agile’ is about running individual projects in a new way, organisational agility is about extending those principles across the entire enterprise to drive better all-round and commercial performance. This is agility as a culture, a mindset and an operating model – an entirely different way of running your business.

And as the speed of change continues to accelerate, agile organisations are succeeding over their competitors. Our research shows that the top 10 per cent of businesses by financial performance are almost 30 per cent more likely to display agile characteristics.
